Consider the alternative Wednesday, September 28, 2005
Doreen Johnson, Framingham Metrowest Daily News
Stop SMOC.  Yes, let's stop SMOC!  No more feeding the elderly, no more sheltering the homeless, and definintely no more teaching recovering drug addicts/alcoholics how to live life on life's terms.

I am a very grateful recovering drug addict and have been for almost 20 years.  Through the grace of God and agencies like SMOC, I found my way back after 25 years of addiction, and I am not alone.

So let's not put a Sage House at 517 winter Street, and in 20 years the good people of Framingham can put a new prison in its place, because that's what you'll need to house all the children of drug addicts who were not helped when you say "Not in my back yard."

I fear for the people of STEPPS, they truly have no clue.
